Chapel of St Lawrence Travel

The Chapel of St Lawrence situated in Cansaulim was constructed and founded in the year 1598 by Father Gonsalo Carvalho S.J. who was the second vicar at the St. Thomas Church, Cansaulim. The Chapel of Three Kings was also founded during the same period on the Cuelim hill.

The Chapel built in Portuguese architectural style is a remarkable sight. Though the chapel has suffered damage and destruction due to vandalism and neglect, it was repeatedly restored to its old glory. The chapel was renovated in 1783 and was expanded to accommodate more space in 1863 as well as in 2001.

St. Stephen chapel at Pale village in Velsao is also considered to have been constructed along with this chapel.
